    American Rattlesnake ^ | July 12, 2011 | Gerard Perry
    William McGowan, author of Gray Lady Down: What the Decline and Fall of the New York Times Means for America, spoke to American Rattlesnake about immigration and how it has been covered by the newspaper. He explained the basic premise of the book, and how the New York Times has betrayed its long journalistic tradition as the paper of record.

    Since Watergate, establishment American journalists have taken as their first commandment, Marx’ eleventh and last thesis on Feuerbach: “Philosophers have only interpreted the world in different ways, but the point is to change it.”Marx was calling for revolutionary action. Today’s pampered, pc journalists engage instead in radical misrepresentation, act as mouthpieces for their revolutionary allies, and silence their opponents. And so it is, with radical homosexuals’ attempt to destroy, or as they would say, “transform,” civilization through its most fundamental institution, marriage. And the mainstream media have signed on to the program.On Thursday, February 26, WNBC-TV’s 11 p.m. news devoted...

    During 2003 the seemingly constant journalistic scandals at the New York Times caused reporters and editors who were busy corrupting the news at less notorious outlets to be overlooked. In addition to the Jayson Blair scandal, there were the newspaper of record's l'affaires Rick Bragg, Lynette Holloway and Maureen Dowd; the resuscitation of the Sally Hemings Hoax; the matter of the non-existent terrorist attack in Iraq reported by "Pfc. Jose Belen"; the newspaper's postmortem castration of photographer Marvin Smith; its premature burial of dancer Katharine Sergava; and editorialist and Jefferson-hoaxer Brent Staples' baseless smear, claiming that Strom Thurmond had raped...

    <p>The New York Times Book Review (search) is considered the industry bible of what’s hot and what’s not in books. But the publication is coming under increasing fire for what some authors are calling a liberal bias.</p> <p>“I think a paper that says ‘All the News That’s Fit to Print’ has a responsibility of covering most things,” said Doug Dutton, manager of Dutton’s bookstore in Los Angeles. “But I think it would be disingenuous to say that the New York Times doesn’t have a leftist slant.”</p>

    In their quest to "queer" America, radical homosexual activists in the media destroy lives, as they manipulate the principle of privacy, and make war on traditional masculinity, sports, and even the truth. In late April, Sen. Rick Santorum (R, Pa.) got a taste of what awaits anyone who opposes the gay agenda. After explaining to Associated Press reporter Lara Jakes Jordan (who is married to Sen. John Kerry’s (D, Ma.) campaign manager, Jim Jordan) his opposition to any pro-gay laws or court rulings that might weaken the family, gay activists demanded that Santorum resign. But the Santorum case was only...

    Send In The Clowns The Jayson Blair story is over. As New York cops might say to crime-scene spectators, ‘Move along, there’s nothing to see.’ I know this, because Times columnist Frank Rich told me so. On June 15 (six-and-a-half weeks after Blair’s resignation), in an essay entitled “15 Minutes Became 5 Weeks,” Rich described the Blair scandal as a “mediathon,” not unlike the coverage of Martha Stewart, for whom Rich suddenly had great sympathy. Rich defined a mediathon as "a relentless hybrid of media circus, soap opera and tabloid journalism we have come to think of as All...

    Anyone familiar with the New York Times' bias against men was not surprised by the Jayson Blair scandal, in which the reporter blatantly falsified stories for years. The Times is notorious for pitching gender feminism in slanted, one-sided reports. The systemic dishonesty exhibited by the Blair scandal was not an isolated incident. When it comes to coverage of men, it seems to be policy at the Gray Lady. continued...

    Jayson Blair was the Great Black Hope. The white publisher of the New York Times, Arthur Sulzberger Jr., and Sulzberger's white executive editor, Howell Raines, were intent on creating the Great African-American Reporter, and Blair was their guy. No matter, that Sulzberger and Raines were 80 years late. The Great Negro Reporter had already come and gone. George S. Schuyler (1895-1977), whose career was ended by the civil rights movement whose most trenchant critic he was, was a self-made man, who needed no white philanthropist/image-makers to invent him. But that's a story for another day. In William McGowan's excellent book,...

    I n June, the U.S. Supreme Court will rule on two lawsuits against the University of Michigan's use of affirmative action in admissions to its undergraduate program and law school, respectively. The mainstream, socialist media have predictably supported the continued admission to otherwise highly selective universities of unqualified black and Hispanic applicants, based on their race or ethnicity, as a means to achieve "diversity." Since affirmative action's 1960s' origins, however, this plague has spread beyond college admissions, to corrupt all of America's institutions. In higher education, affirmative action has led to the hiring of incompetent, often openly racist black and...

    The New York Times refused to review William McGowan´s blockbuster book, Coloring the News: How Crusading for Diversity Has Corrupted American Journalism (Encounter Books, 2001). New York Times Book Review editor Chip McGrath said it would not be appropriate for the Times to review a book that was so critical of the Times. But such a review might have alerted Times chairman Arthur Sulzberger, Jr., and his editors, who vigorously promote "diversity" in the news business, to a well-documented expose of the corruption that quite possibly led to the Jayson Blair scandal. Blair, a reporter who came to the Times...

    We tend to give more credibility to groups on the liberal side of the spectrum than on the conservative side. . . . We [journalists] have to guard against falling into groupthink. —Tom Fiedler, executive editor, The Miami Herald If I were still teaching journalism, as I used to at New York University and the New School, we'd spend time on George Seldes, I.F. Stone, Murray Kempton, Jimmy Breslin, Dorothy Rabinowitz, and Bob Herbert. Of the assigned books, one would be mandatory: Coloring the News by William McGowan (Encounter Books). McGowan's reporting and commentary have been in The New York...
